another monday

Happy Monday everyone - is anyone else easing into your week? Seems to be how I am every Monday, but maybe that's just because it's laundry day. blech... So here's something cute and crafty from Beate's weekend sketch challenge to get you out of the Monday blahs - hehe! Last Thursday we had a family picture taken and I can't believe how smoothly it went -who would have ever thought that a 1 and 2-year-old would sit still long enough to get some great pictures? Now we have a fantastic picture to display in our home - sweet success! Anyway - I still have the light blue/navy blue color combo in my head, so I went with it for my card today. Also, WAY back in the very beginning of my blog I used Katie's dress as an inspiration challenge and here she is wearing it - love that dress! The card is 4-1/4 square and I had clear embossed the background a long time ago, but never used it and tucked it away to use later - makes for a quick card today.

See you back soon!

stamps: nursery necessities, nursery letters jumbo wheel
ink: so saffron, bashful blue, versamark
